Well said. Otherwise we might have to agree Clapton shouldn'y play 'Crossroads,' etc.
But I do feel for example that 'Days Between' and 'LLR' are completely off limits for different reasons. They are very powerful it seems- the equivalent of a summation, a goodbye. Just hallowed ground material- way above some of the other late-era stuff like 'Black Muddy River' and 'Believe It Or Not.'
i'm disappointed the other band members don't feel the same way. We're only talking a song or two here, not the whole Jerry/Hunter canon. If somebody wants to wing 'Sugaree,' I say go for it..... but have some sense that not all songs are the same.

well i would disagree with you, but i have to say that when i heard furthur do "days between" they didn't really do it justice. it was good, of course, but it lacked some amount of sadness that made that song really great.

Exactly!
To me the lack of sadness is why Further would probably be better off leaviing it alone.
There's plenty of Pink Floyd matreial they haven't covred yet to fill the void.
